Jocelyn Pook is one of the UK’s most versatile composers, having written extensively for stage, screen, opera house and concert hall. She has established an international reputation as a highly original composer winning her numerous awards and nominations including a BAFTA, Olivier (King Charles III), Golden Globe (Eyes Wide Shut), and two British Composer Awards (Speaking in Tunes, DESH).

Pook graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1983, where she studied viola. She then embarked on a period of touring and recording with artists such as Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack, Laurie Anderson and PJ Harvey and as a member of the Communards. Pook tours extensively with the Jocelyn Pook Ensemble, performing her own repertoire, music from her albums and film scores.

Recent projects include the film score to Björn Runge’s The Wife (2018) with Glenn Close and the score to true crime documentary The Staircase by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade, both released as digital albums in 2018. Recent premieres include Memorial, a large-scale music theatre work with music by Pook and performed by her ensemble at Adelaide Festival, Brisbane Festival and London’s Barbican Theatre; and the world premiere of the final part of her mental health trilogy, Hysteria, at Hoxton Hall, London.
